Procrastination station

I should be reading essays but I can't face another one.  The topic is fun, resurrecting the woolly mammoth, could we do it and if we did what would the impact be.  But I just read a dreadful one so I need a break.  I am resisting the urge to snack, dammit I hate this time of year!  I have six week ahead of me of marking.  Essays will take me about three weeks and then right about the time I finish then the next round comes in (reports this time), plus I have my weekly marking that never ends.

I had a stressful day, that combined with the marking really makes me want chocolate.  I'm fighting every day at the moment to stay on plan, sometimes I win, sometimes I don't.  I see Jake on Friday and I'm a little nervous.  I'm not weighing myself so I don't know if I've lost, I fear the reprisal if I haven't -LOL-

Ok, back to the next one...


  1. A professor grading her own papers? My GOD how refreshing.

    I hope they never stumble upon my corpse preserved in a bog or a bed of ice. They will see me gripping a Snickers bar in one hand and a piece of fruit in the other - then proclaim that crazy humans lived a tortured life. Not a very lovely representative for my kind.

  2. We've all been there and faced those days. Sometimes it's better to just fall off the wagon a bit, and come at it with a fresh start. It's impossible to be perfect all the time, especially where weight loss is concerned. Every once in a while you need to reboot, consider your progess, and remember what you are fighting so hard for, and why.

    That is an interesting paper topic! I remember doing something similar in jr high. I bet some of those are real entertaining to read ;)

  3. I love that topic! The well written ones would be fun to read.
    Bad papers would make me wanna eat cookie after cookie too. Ug. Good luck and god speed. ;)
